Message from the US Organizing Executive Committee: On behalf of our U.S. Environmental Business Delegation to Vietnam and our Conference Secretariat, I am honored to welcome you to our forums entitled, ―Technology Solutions for Vietnam’s Sustainable Economic Development Goals‖ in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. During the past year, we have organized a Vietnam Environmental Business Forum in Washington D.C. featuring Ambassador Le Cong Phung and hosted numerous environment and climate change delegations from Vietnam to share our public-private perspectives. Following up on this engagement, we have brought a delegation of U.S. experts to Vietnam to share with you our lessons learned and potential technology Peter Gourlay solutions to help further Vietnam’s goals as the destination of choice for President, MD-Asia Environmental Partnership foreign investors and tourist in the region. Vietnam Environmental Forum Conference Chair Greetings and welcome to our conference on Environmental Solutions applying U.S. Technology. In our continuing engagement with Vietnam, Washington Laboratories has brought U.S. and international experts together to share in an exchange on critical topics involving product standards and energy efficiency. This third forum features the high-level cooperation and engagement of our partners, The Maryland Environmental Partnership and Whiteford Taylor Preston, Columbia Analytical Services, IM Systems Group and AmericanTCB. We believe that this forum will lead to a solid foundation for further business addressing Vietnam’s pressing environmental needs. Michael Violette, P.E. President Washington Laboratories Vietnam Environmental Forum Secretary Ten years ago, the trade between Vietnam and the United States was close to that between the United States and Haiti. No longer. Vietnam has a young, educated population that speaks English. It has a stable political system. And with costs in China rising, many are turning to other Asian venues for manufacturing. Enter Vietnam. It is a dynamic place and needs creative thinking on tough climate change and environmental issues. And needs it now. We are happy you are with us and hope the delegation helps build long-term, mutually beneficial relationships. Alexander Koff, Esq.
